Ms. Hanh spoke softly and slowly but was still out of breath, her voice was whispering.

Ms. Hanh became F0 last weekend, after her son had a runny nose and tested positive.

The school is lacking teachers because many are F0 students.

At home, Ms. Hanh said teachers are `dizzy` because they have to try to complete two tests, for students studying in person and online, to submit to school this week.

Since the second half of February, Ms. Hoa, 37 years old, a primary school teacher in Dong Anh district, Hanoi, has almost had to `split` to teach both in person and online.

In the morning, she teaches directly to about 25 students out of a total of more than 40. Because the network connection at the school is not good and lacks equipment, Ms. Hoa cannot livestream the teaching session to students F0 and F1 who are at home.

After nearly a week, Ms. Hoa’s two children were infected with Covid-19.

No longer having to teach in-person in the morning and online in the afternoon like before, Ms. Hoa `breathed easily` for a few days then felt tired and had a sore throat.

`At that time, many colleagues still had to teach all day in two forms like I did before, so I sympathized with the principal’s suggestion. Even though I was tired, I thought I could still teach online,` Ms. Hoa said.

After trying for a few days, she almost collapsed when she started coughing `as if her lungs would explode`.

On February 27, the Hanoi People’s Committee agreed with the proposal of the Department of Education and Training, allowing elementary school children and grade 6 children in 18 suburban districts and towns to study online.

Ms. Hoang Thuy Lan Anh, homeroom teacher of class 4/7, Phan Dinh Phung Primary School, District 3 is teaching directly to 21 students in class and 28 students at home.

In recent days, Hanoi has had over 10,000 Covid-19 cases per day.

In Ho Chi Minh City, preschool children from three years old and up and all high school students are in a week of direct learning since Tet.

On the morning of March 2, class 4/7, Phan Dinh Phung Primary School, District 3, headed by Ms. Hoang Thuy Lan Anh, had 28 students absent, because the class recorded seven F0 students.

`Teaching a combination of these two forms is very difficult because it is impossible to fully control the students’ learning. The online learning method is not very effective, many students are not self-aware,` Ms. Lan Anh said.

Teaching half the class directly and half the class indirectly two sessions a day, Ms. Lan Anh also has to take on many other additional tasks, including discussing and answering questions from students and parents.

`Since school resumed, every day I receive 2-3 parents calling to discuss their children’s studies. Many parents are also tired because their children have only been studying for a few days and have to stay at home. I reassure the parents.

Due to the fourth outbreak of the epidemic, since April 27 last year, the whole country has spent more than nine months at home, studying online.

According to statistics from the Ministry of Education and Training, from April 27, 2021 to February 2022, the entire industry recorded more than 162,000 cases of Covid-19 infection;

The Ministry still maintains the viewpoint of opening schools, organizing both direct and online teaching methods in parallel.
